Dark Knight Preview

Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ and Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, IL.

Timed to debut around the 2008 release of The Dark Knight movie, Six Flags tied its hype bandwagon to the Hollywood hype machine. Billed as indoor, themed coasters, the park chain forgot two essential ingredients: the themeing and the coasters. Except for a so-so pre-show, the attractions hardly features any effects. The few onboard effects are mostly lame. And the rides are fairly standard--and tame--Wild Mouse-style coasters.

A third Dark Knight coaster was supposed to open at Six Flags New England, but the project was canceled and the coaster opened at Six Flags Mexico instead.
